Re: copper with u-verse?
I have seen fttp only in brand new housing. Since they have or had pots I find it extremely unlikely the neighborhood has had it's copper replaced.
But yes, salesmen are generally clueless.
As for lightning, even an indirect strike will take out the equipment, whether it is at&t's or the customer's. Bonding and grounding only helps so much.
Edit: Fixed a word swap.
Change the scheme, alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you'd be so kind.
said by Mr Fel: I live in a brand new section of a neighborhood that is about 7 years old. Anyone in the older sections is fed off of an older VRAD and most require iNIDs with pair bonding because most of the houses are beyond 3000 feet. Our section had a brand new VRAD installed and our houses are all 2000 feet or less to the box. It is still all copper in the ground here. So, I'm not sure what criteria AT&T uses for laying fiber in neighborhoods, regardless of how new they are.
